Give My Regards to Broadway

Yesterday was the opening of the Pet Art Show, at the Bott Shoppe in Mamaroneck, NY.  If you’re interested in seeing the show, the address is 172 East Boston Post Road.  Besides the show, the Bott Shoppe, has an art studio, classes and art related items in its store.  If you are in the area, it’s an interesting store, with lots of stuff to buy and browse.

I had a great time at the opening, especially having conversations about NYC, what has happened there since I left, and discussions of the art world in general.

And as a former New Yorker, I thought I’d make the trip so easily, and wow, I’m so tired.  In case you’ve never been there, in New York City you walk a lot.  I mean A LOT.  It’s a car unfriendly city, especially Manhattan.  I remember long ago, before I lived there, I wondered why New Yorkers were so slim.  Now I know, all that walking.

However, I’m out of shape, and I no longer  have the stamina I used to.  My legs are sore today.

Speaking of Pet Art, I’ve still got the Guardian Animal Hospital in Brewster on hold.  I’ve no idea where it’s going, I’m not having much luck getting through to them.  Speaking of not know where somethings going, spring seems to be on hold, too.

I’m itching to get started on some art other than dog portraits.  I have an old drawing, I did when I was still living in Greenwich, CT.  Trust me, that’s old.  I really like it, but sometimes, I’m not the best judge of my own work.  Maybe it’s a little too much Thomas Kinkaide-ian?

Anyway, I’m thinking of updating it, and doing it again for a good spring drawing.

So, Happy Landscapes in the meantime!

And Changing My Mind Back…

It’s still wintry around here.  We had the bomb cyclone yesterday, gray skies today.  No daffodils.  No forsythia.  No crocus.  Spring is not in a hurry to get here.

So, paper is on order and I worked on the cloudy day drawing I originally intended.

So, is it moody…or is it just plain depressing.  I’m going to give it a rest, while you give it some thought.

Here’s “Cloudy Day in the Park”

Insert Something Insightful, here.

I honestly was trying to come up with a good title, and nothing came to mind.  I got to thinking about how my timeline on Facebook is loaded with insightful messages, that are pretty repetitive and useless.  You know them, the inspirational ones, with backgrounds of sunsets, seashores and nature in general.  So, I decided to cut it out, and not put anything insightful instead.

That brings me to, (I don’t know why it does) my weekend of drawing.  Yesterday, it was a hot, humid day…made for sitting inside and drinking iced coffee or something stronger.  So, I did this drawing, “A Shrubbery Composition”.

Not particularly insightful, but hey, you gotta keep at it.

We did go for a ride, and ended up in a town park…beautifully natural, and very few people.  Rare these days.  Drawings will be coming up.
